Indian nurses working at al-Jala hospital in Libya’s second largest city Benghazi had requested for evacuation a day after Islamic militia officially declared control over the city.
As many as 58 nurses, most of whom belong to Kerala, had reached Tunisia from Tripoli.
The assailants then got into the car in which they came and drove off.
